In the following sentence, what is the meaning of 'be it'?

"Your "ideal self" is the representation of attributes you would like to have ideally, be it related to your future goals, wishes, etc."

Why is it like this?

It's archaic. Back in time, people used to invert the subject and the verb and using subjunctive, to express conditionals with formality. Example:

Were you here with me, I wouldn't be so lonely.
If you were here with me, I wouldn't be so lonely.

In your case, you can interpret it like

"Your "ideal self" is the representation of attributes you would like to have ideally, whether it is related to your future goals, wishes, etc."
